ABSTRACT --- A special hot log saw has been developed as an alternative to
the traditional hot log shear for cutting billets to the desired length from logs
exiting the gas- or oil-fired heater. The main advantage of the saw is the absolute
precision of the cut, without any deformation of the end of the billet. In this paper
we present what users of the saw experienced compared to that of the hot log
shear with regard to operating, maintenance, and quality factors.
